Vans Skateboarding just released a new European-based video called “Much Quiet” via our friends over at Free and we highly recommend you to watch it. The almost thirty(!) minutes long edit is definitely worth the watch. Sirus F. Gahan did an amazing job filming and editing this one! We were especially hyped about the Helena Long opener part. She has an interview about the video HERE.
Our frenchman Augustin Giovannoni aka. Nnoni is back with a new project and it’s his best work so far. Make yourself comfortable and watch Oscar Candon, Marca Barbier, Paul Grund, Tom O’reilly & a lot more.
Probably the most motivated filmer, Augustin Giovannoni, is back with another one. As enthusiastic as he is, you’ve probably seen most of this footage on his Instagram already, but who cares. Keep ’em coming, Noni!
After Berlin, Paris was the next station for the Nozbone Benchmark contest that had actually its first Berlin event this year. So, the contest went back home to celebrate the 10th year of the event. As always, the vibe in Paris was really good and even some Berlin locals made it on the podium.
Last week we celebrated the start of the 10-year anniversary of Nozbone’s Benchmark contest. Starting in Berlin and concluding last Sunday in Paris. And a sun-filled day it was. It felt like spring had hit us again for a day, which turned the day into somewhat of a festival.
With the mood set, let’s get into the skating. It was culminating in some amazing skating by people like John Purcell, Hugo Corbin, Giorgi Armani, Farid Ulrich and Nozbone’s own Marc-A Barbier who, in the end, took home the win.
We think Nike SB, Civilist, Nozbone and À Propos magazine did a great job this year and we hope to be back next year.
We are proud to host the probably last skate event for summer 2017. The Benchmark Contest takes their format to Berlin for the very first time and here is all the information you need:
“For its tenth year, the Nozbone Benchmark Contest presented by Nike Skateboarding goes to Berlin on September 16th to meet Civilist before heading back to Paris on the 24th.
Two stages for this international edition which rules remain the same since 2008: doing a line of tricks on benches and the different obstacles built specially for the event, inspired by the artistic style born in the early days of the 20th century in Berlin: the Bauhaus.
Winner of the Berlin contest at ‘Spot der Visionäre’ will share a total prize purse of € 1.500 and will be flown out the OG Paris event.”
